Bang & Olufsen unveil new portable home speaker

Bang & Olufsen has introduced Beosound Level, a new portable wireless home speaker with a slim design and built-in recessed handle for portability.

Whether standing upright in the kitchen, lying flat on a table or hanging on the wall, the speaker changes its tuning to deliver an impressive music listening experience in any position, in any room.

“Beosound Level is the ultimate speaker for people who want the flexibility and convenience of a portable speaker but don’t want to sacrifice on sound quality and multi-room connectivity for the ultimate music listening experience,” commented Christoffer Poulsen, Senior Vice President and Head of Product Management at Bang & Olufsen.

“It works effortlessly with Spotify Connect, AirPlay 2 and Chromecast and because of Beosound Level’s modular design, we are future-proofing Beosound Level so that it can deliver our signature sound for decades to come.”

Built in Struer, Denmark, Beosound Level uses soft materials including a natural oak veneer, reminiscent of luxury Scandinavian furniture, and a seamless knitted dark grey Kvadrat textile.

It can also easily be carried around the home and even taken into the garden thanks to its wireless technologies and IP54 Dust and Splash Water Resistant Rating. The speaker’s user interface is integrated into its aluminium frame and the buttons can be activated through soft touch, allowing you to reach your favourite song or radio station effortlessly. When approaching the speaker, Beosound Level lights up to greet you through integrated proximity sensors adjusting its brightness to suit day or night. After you are finished interacting with the speaker, the light slowly dims.

In addition, with 105 watts of music power, Beosound Level delivers clarity and dynamic bass due to its powerful five-driver speaker setup with two 4-inch woofers, one 2-inch full range driver, two 0.8-inch tweeters and low distortion amplifiers.

This speaker comes with Bang & Olufsen’s new replaceable streaming module, which will power all the company’s future home speakers. The module can be replaced and updated to receive new performance updates and features in the future.

The brand also said it will produce exchangeable front covers in new materials and colourways so that the speaker can evolve with users’ personal style.
